Internal Security Force: The paramilitary law-enforcement
and intelligence agency of the Interstellar
Confederacy. The ISF was responsible for the maintainance of order
within the Confederacy and for the cessation of "dangerous" contact with
outsiders who ventured into the Interstellar Confederacy without permission.
Also in times of crisis, the ISF acted as a cadre of the Confederacy army.
Many worlds within the Great Spiral
still have vestiges of the ISF within their governments. -core
